Default Panasonic - Lumix ZS8 vs Sony Cyber-shot W560

I need to but 2 cameras for Christmas. I am looking for an easy to use camera for my parents that are somewhat technically challenged and my 8 year old daughter. I have identified the Panasonic - Lumix ZS8 and the Sony Cyber-shot W560 based on reviews and sale prices. Right now the Panasonic is running about $60 higher than the Sony. I think that 95% of the time they will be taking pictures in the auto mode. I can get them different cameras but wanted some input.

Thanks for the advice!

I can't recommend either. Personally, I'd lean towards the Nikon S9100/8100 or Canon SX230 in this camera class. Or if you go back a generation, the Canon SX130 or Panasonic ZS7. If your heart is really set on those 2 specific cams though, I doubt the Panasonic is worth $60 more.
